Subject: Climbing Ben Nevis

Me and brother have decided to climb Ben Nevis in April. I know you have a lot of experience and have climbed this mountain a few times so I was wondering if you could give us some tips.

What sort of training should we do to prepare for the climb? What should we take with us on the climb? What surprises might we have on the day?
